Dubai Wedding | Omar & Suzy
We first ‘met’ Omar & Suzy via Skype. At the time, they were still living in Dubai and so we had to schedule our ‘meet up’ and the nine hour time difference accordingly. We remember falling in love with their down-to-earth personalities and feeling instantly excited to get to know them both more. Not only did we have a ton of things in common with Omar & Suzy, but we adored their humor and their obvious love for one another. Everything pointed to a wonderful match and the fact that the wedding would be held in beautiful Dubai (a new destination for us!) was just a cherry on top of getting to work with this awesome couple.
After two flights (one of them, 13 hours long) we landed in Dubai and couldn’t wait to finally get to officially meet up with Omar & Suzy in person. As expected, they were just as lovely as they had been online and we were beaming with excitement to document their special day.
For their wedding, they chose the Address Montgomerie. It was a stunningly beautiful day, perfect Dubai January weather, and a gorgeous setting. All of their family and friends gathered together from all over the world to come and celebrate Omar & Suzy and excitement filled the air as everyone arrived for the special occasion. We could see how happy everyone was to see this couple join together in love and it was a blessing to witness such a special day in their lives!
A favorite moment of ours was photographing the couple at sunset. Dubai delivered a beautiful sky for these two and Omar & Suzy were glowing with smiles. Another awesome moment was the Zaffeh band leading Omar & Suzy and all of their guests into the reception. They started from the front of the Address Montgomerie and sang, drummed, and danced all the way down to where the reception spot was being held. It was an amazing moment to photograph and witness! We also loved their killer reception setup. It was important to Omar & Suzy that everything be held outside. Under the prettiest night sky, twinkle lights, and palm trees, Omar & Suzy celebrated the night away. They danced, sang loudly, toasted, laughed, and cried happy tears!
We can’t thank Omar & Suzy enough for flying us to Dubai to capture this incredible day. Words cannot express how special it was to us and we know we’ve made a lasting connection with this fun couple! They recently moved to Singapore and we know they will continue to bring joy to everyone who’s lucky enough to know them.
Omar & Suzy, we love you guys and enjoyed every minute of our time in Dubai celebrating with you both! Big congrats from us again and stay tuned for your fun Adventure Session preview too (coming soon)!
